Ryanair have announced that a “small number” of office jobs have been cut in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Poland, through compulsory redundancies.
Ryanair’s people director Darrell Hughes said it was a “very painful time” for the carrier.
He added, “While we expect to reopen our offices from June 1, we will not require the same number of support team members in a year when we will carry less than 100m passengers, against an original budget of 155m.
“Regrettably, we will now have a small number of compulsory redundancies in Dublin, Stansted, Madrid and Wroclaw to right size our support teams.”
Hughes said the airline are meeting with unions to discuss their restructuring programme and “further announcements” will be made in due course.
